We went to see the lights at Thanksgiving Point on Friday Night. For those of you who haven't been, there's tons of lights and you drive through really slow and there's music playing and the kids love it. Well I took some great pics and then accidentally deleted them (and am so angry about it) but it was so great because Ellie came up with the idea that we were driving through a Christmas Parade and we should open the sun roof and she could be "The Christmas Princess of Thanksgiving Point". She was still in her red Christmas dress from her school performance and she hung out the sunroof waving, blowing kisses and telling us how "they might ask her to come everynight and wear her "fancy" coat with the fur and put furry gloves on her and have her wave and perform for all the people". Matt and I were laughing so hard. It was so great! I got out of the car and took some pics of her, but they're gone, so this will have to create the memory. We also saw the reindeer (real ones) and it was a great night!

My Early Christmas Present to Myself!!

Bought myself a Dyson Vacuum! I've wanted one forever and finally bought it. Whipped it out on Saturday and it's so great! It's even Pink (Breast Cancer Edition) and yes I feel very good about it and the fact that Target donated $40.00 of my purchase to Breast Cancer Awareness / Research! That totally justified buying it and breaking it out before Christmas! Currently looking at my fresh vacuum lines and enjoying every minute of it!


I have run the Moab Half Marathon the past 2 years and it's given me the motivation I need to work out and get in shape. However after the last 1/2 I did (Hurricane) I made a pact with myself that I wasn't going to run another one for a very very long time (nice). It was hard and painful. However, I've gotten very lazy and inactive and am seriously considering registering, just to get myself moving again. Sad that I have to be signed up for a race to motivate myself, but it seems to be the only effective solution for me. I haven't done jack crap in months and it would be brutal to start training. However, it is a very beautiful run through the canyon and I love running with my friends Kat and Suz and going down with Maren, Nate and Matt. We've had a great time the past couple of years. Maybe the 5 mile instead of 13? Not sure, just throwing it out there. I think the reason I'm also making a public announcement about it on my blog, is another attempt to motivate myself. Sad!
